Cyclades through touch
an awareness program for students of primary and secondary education
The aim of this program is to sensitize children of different age groups about the problems that children with VI and/or other disabilities are facing.
The activities are centered around the multisensory kit, which was designed for people with visual impairments and primarily for the School for the Blind in Athens. The concept was that the educational material would act as the basis for a series of multi-sensory activities and information about the Ancient Cycladic Civilization in general and more specifically the marble figurines with direct and indirect references for the Cyclades and their history.
The kit contains a glossary book printed in typical and braille writing, an embroidered map of the Cyclades, a tactile water map, pebbles of different shapes and minerals, a puzzle consisting of broken parts of different figurines, pieces of foam and a replica of a marble figurine.
As the educational material, can be used by different kind of groups in many ways, the workshop can take place in the classroom or the museum.
